I'm Rollin !

I am on a roll! Don't know what's come over me, but I'm turning things out this weekend like a machine! This (above) is going into a giveaway I am working on for you! You will have to wait to see what it will become. See those little holes? I put them there! My theory is,if you want somethin to look old, ya gotta add holes. I will be including a sampler of my Christmas creations in the giveaway! I will have it all together and posted by Monday. So stay posted, cause I can't wait to give it to one of you! I wish I could give it to all of you, but this machine isn't high tech and does has some maintenance issues.

I started last night at midnight! I am definitely a night owl! By 2:00 am I had finished a new shower curtain. Today, I have made some more book page wreaths,the S. Claus canvas above, a distressed curtain for my hubby's DVD cabinet and did 5 loads of laundry.And.... who knows what I will accomplish before bedtime. Yes siree Bob, I am a machine!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is the lovely DVD cabinet! There isn't anything wrong with the cabinet. Just don't think DVD's are pretty to look at. So I decided to make a curtain to hide them.

This design is what I came up with. You may ask "How did you paint all trillion of those little do-dads?" The answer is, I didn't. I made a little stencil and used a sharpie marker! I love sharpies almost as much as I love spray paint. Which brings me to Maddie,she is a creator and quite artistic for her age. I asked her what she would like for Christmas. Her reply, "I really just want a new box of crayons."

O.K., Here it is. Not completely satisfied by a long shot. It needs something else. A stripe down the center maybe ? A border of some sort? Please, please,please offer suggestions! As you know, this will drive me nuts until I get it right! Whom ever comes up with a winning solution can borrow my handy hubby for a weekend! Naaa, I made that up. Sorry Gwen(new follower,great friend,and married to my uncle). She wants my husband and my ice skates. You just can't trust anyone anymore! I think I heard the watch dogs. She is probably lurking around waiting for the perfect moment to snatch Terry. If she takes my skates,I hope she falls down and skins up her knees! I gotta go look for my marshmallow shooter!!!!!!!!!
